Lyptus® hardwood products offer versatility, durability and elegance that will enhance any room in your home. Lyptus derives from fast-growing eucalyptus trees cultivated on well-managed plantations and harvested to sustainable certification standards, making it an environmentally-responsible hardwood.

It features a fine, beautiful grain making it a versatile hardwood that takes a wide range of stains and finishes evenly such as walnut, cherry, mahogany or maple. Depending on the finish material used, a lighter or darker look can be created to complement nearly every décor.

Although Lyptus hardwood is best known for its use as flooring, it is also available as lumber, veneer and plywood, and can be used for cabinetry, millwork, furniture, stairs, and railings – nearly every interior hardwood application. Best of all, Lyptus is priced favorably compared to genuine mahogany and domestic cherry, so you get the unique look and cachet of an “exotic” hardwood at competitive pricing.

                                                       


The eucalyptus plantations supplying the lumber mill are now owned and managed by Fibria — a new company formed in September of 2009 as a result of the merger between Aracruz Celulose and Votorantim Celulose e Papel (VCP). The Aracruz Produtos de Madeira S.A. (APM) mill which produces Lyptus lumber is a joint venture between Fibria and Weyerhaeuser. The Fibria plantations are a mosaic of eucalyptus and native tropical forest which were previously agricultural and grazing lands. Over 30% of these plantations are managed as permanent native forest dedicated to environmental protection. Original species native to the area over 100 years ago have been reintroduced into this ecosystem. The Fibria plantations supplying the APM mill are certified to Brazil’s national sustainable forestry standard, Cerflor. This standard has been endorsed by the Programme for the Endorsement of Forest Certification (PEFC), a European based international organization that endorses credible sustainable forestry programs. PEFC is the largest global forest certification system and has more than 200 million hectares of certified forest under 35 independent national certification systems.

Eucalyptus trees grow quickly and may be harvested within 14 to 16 years of planting. Lyptus® forests are 11 times more productive on a per hectare per year basis when compared to a temperate forest, which may take 80 to 100 years or more to mature. Lyptus forests also produce 30 times the volume of lumber per hectare per year when compared to an unmanaged temperate forest. Like Weyerhaeuser mills in the United States, the APM mill uses virtually every portion of the log, converting it to lumber and other usable by-products; residuals are used as bio-energy for the kiln drying operations.
